On Thursday, April 11, 2019 we celebrated the retirement of Susan Frost, who served in the Department of State as the Family Liaison Office (FLO) Director since 2013. As the FLO director, Mrs. Frost worked closely with AAFSW to promote Foreign Service Family interests.
On March 1, 2018, the Family Liaison Office celebrated the 40th anniversary since its inception and official opening by Secretary of State and Mrs. Vance. AAFSW, the Research Committee on Spouses, and the AAFSW Forum helped develop the concept and prove the need for a Family Liaison Office.
AAFSW wishes to thank Mrs. Frost for her dedication on Foreign Service family issues as well as her husband, Gregory Frost, who retired in 2005, for his mentoring throughout his Foreign Service career.
AAFSW also wishes good luck to the new FLO director!
